Has to be one of the coolest apps I have seen in a long time. I have seen a fair number of GIS type apps related to the O & G industry but this is progress!
That's is cool!!
It definitely is awesome. My mother bought a condo in Seattle last year, but I haven't been back since to see it. Once I got keyhole, I put her address in and sent her a snapshot. We got on the phone, and she was able to point out her place. Very cool! My trial ran out, but I'm seriously tempted to pay the thirty bucks to keep it running. Much better than Worldwind.
Corey - that is a seriously cool way to use it. I think I'm going to plunk down the $30.00 - I'm pretty impressed with it.
I give it an A for imagery content and a D- for image rendering. I installed it on a minimal system and they rely on the graphics card to do their rendering. Which is smart hardware runs faster than software. However they either don't switch to software rendering on minimal systems and just leave it up to whatever card is in there or their software rendering is really bad. Either way it sucks on a minimal system. So basically they have a content holder (a viewer). If you give me an indexed system of imagery like they have to code against I can write you web app that renders better than their client side app and that is just sad.
I'm going to have to disagree on this one their imagery is great but their app sucks. You should be able to detect the graphics card (which they do) and then have your server compensate for it or write better software rendering for minimal systems client side.
I develop for CAD and GIS and I always test it on a minimal machine. You could make that app fly on minimal systems if you wanted to but it looks like they are simply streaming whatever comes in from the server to a windows DC and any monkey can do that. They are relying on other peoples hardware and their image datasets to make them money.
To me it says "we know how to run server side software packages that index raster imagery spatially and we can kind of write code but not very well, ....oh quick look at the pretty picture".
Hi on eye candy low on good development.
